Christmas Decorating, North Woods-Style
More tips for a natural look
Buy roses from a grocery store. Cut the stems short and bunch together for old-fashioned charm. Wendy displays them in a vintage silver flower frog (left), echoing the library's paisley wallpaper.
Accent arrangements with pinecones, redtwig dogwood, cattails, pussy willows, twigs and pheasant feathers. Gather items from your yard, or buy them at a crafts supply store.
Start paperwhites early so they bloom in time for the holidays. Display in pots or outdoor urns.
